Montgomery County Students Voice Their Opinion on Proposed Curfew
Students voiced their displeasure with the proposed legislation at Wednesday's teen town hall meeting.
More than 100 students attended Wednesday night's second-ever student town hall meeting in Rockville to show unified support against the proposed Montgomery County teen curfew, according to a report by ABC 7-WJLA.
The students had an opportunity to address their concerns with the proposed legislation to county council members. Some expressed concerns ranging from legal to economic issues, the report said.
The proposed curfew would be in effect from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. on weeknights and from midnight to 5 a.m. on weekends and would applie to youth 17 and younger.
Leggett has remained supportive of the bill, discounting studies of the effects of such curfew laws on teenagers conducted in other jurisdictions.
There has also yet to be a ruling on what would happen to minors who are cited for a curfew violation.
